For Starters #01: Blaze


(Just Blaze, black and free -- with bonus white guys)

01. Blaze - "How Deep Is Your Love" (Life Line, 2001)
02. Blaze - "Lovelee Dae" (Playhouse, 1998)
03. Blaze Presents Sheila Slappy - "Love Comes Around" (Simplex, 1996)
04. Blaze Presents A Moment in Time - "So Thankful" (Shelter, 2002)
05. Blaze Presents The Ghost of Norman Harris - "Love Is the Message" (Love Line, 1993)
06. Blaze Presents Shelter Skelter - "Tell Me Something Good" (Wansel Wand, 1993)
07. Cassio Ware - "Baby Love" (Easy Street, 1992)
08. Blaze Presents Blaze - "Sweet Thing (Danny Krivit Re-Edit)" (Roc Meets Rambis, 1991)
09. Blaze Presents Cassioware f/ Sajaeda - "Fantasy" (Shelter, 1994)
10. Blaze - "If You Should Need a Friend" (Quark, 1987)

Actually, this is more like a guide to Blaze minus hand-percussion overloads. 01: A lot closer to Level 42 than the Bee Gees. 02: Only remotely like Bill Withers; brings great mists of purification as much as Pepe Bradock's "Deep Burnt." 03: Closer to Herb Alpert than Donald Byrd & 125th Street NYC. 04: Cynic kryptonite. 05: Exactly like MFSB. 06: More Upchurch/Tennyson than Rufus/Chaka. 07: Closer to Bernard Wright featuring Robert Owens than Diana Ross & the Supremes. 08: More Rufus/Chaka than Mary/Puffy. 09: More Loose Ends than Earth, Wind & Fire. 10: Jamie Principle after stalker rehab.

hey andy - you're not feeling "my beat"? ;-)

(everyone go find the new afro/highlife remixes of "my beat" by s.u.m.o. - they're a lark)

"moonwalk" and "wishing you were here" don't make it?
